12:03 am
emergency personnel in. they're going in. but the pace is slow. and remember, nepal is one of the poorest countries in the word. it simply does not have adequate infrastructure. to deal with the crisis of this magnitude. whether it is even having the personnel to, to help distribute all of the supplies that have been sent in to nepal. it is a real problem. yes there is a backlog. we are also hearing about boxes of food and water that are sitting on the tarmac in kathmandu airport waiting to be distributed. but manpower is a problem. nepalese officials said two days ago, 90% of the country's 96,000 army troops are involved in -- in rescue efforts. almost everybody who can be of help is trying to help in nepal. but look at the enormity of what's happened, the scale of what happened. it is very difficult to get relief supplies across to the people who need hem. and this is leading to a lot of frustration. people are frustrated because they aren't getting much food,
12:04 am
water, they have no place to sleep, shelter a big problem. and several people who work for aid agencies, they're frustrated too. they're managing to send supplies in. be it slowly. those supplies aren't able to reach the people they're suppose to reach. a lot of frustration all around. >> as you mentioned, malika, an impoverished country before the quake struck. with humble means. how much connected with electrical power. and the like. we know that weather conditions are making things difficult. the delay of aid. how, we saw from arwa damon, last hour in one of the remote hours. people in the absence of any aid, banding together and helping each other out as much as possible. what's likely happening in the capital and surrounding areas if people don't see aid? surely they're trying to do what they can to survive.
12:05 am
>> absolutely, arwa talked. local groups, communities. there is strength in numbers. a lot of people are just doing that. when people were running short on food supplies, first few nights. kathmandu, they formed communal kitchens, cooking outside. bringing together whatever little food they could. now what we are seeing is that a lot of people are leaving kathmandu. they have been there for three, four days after the earthquake. they're not getting the help that they thought they would, the help that they really need. many of them are trying to leave kathmandu and go back to their villages. if we are not getting the help we need. what's the point of staying. many are freeing how to go back home. a lot of the people in kathmandu are workers who leave villages in remote area come to the capital looking for work.
12:06 am
now they can't to go back home. go and see their families. get in touch with their families. many haven't been able to connect with. because communication has been patchy. many want to go back home to see if they even have a home in the first place to see whether their home exists or whether, their home has been razed to the ground after the earthquake. you will see many people trying to go back home. >> malika kapur, with the latest on some frustrations. people try and band together in the absence of aid. thank you very much. we are frying trying to connect arwa damon making her way through remote, distant areas. we spoke with her last hour. of course, difficult to reconnect with her. when we do we'll bring tight her live. new information out of baltimore, maryland. city wide curfew in effect for the second night in a row. crowd once again to to the streets on wednesday. these protests though, they're largely peaceful.

"the washington post" says it obtained a police document that suggests gray may have tried to injure himself in the police van after his arrest. that document sites another person in the van with gray. the two men were separated bay a partition. so the prisoner couldn't actually see gray. a family member of an officer involved in the arrest, spoke with cnn. and says whatever injuries gray sustained, happened before he was transported. police are expected to release a report on gray's arrest by friday. >> right now, most of the protesters in baumeltimore are complying with a mandatory overnight curfew. our ryan young has more on what has been happening.
12:08 am
>> the streets of baltimore are clear. officers, community members worked together to make sure the streets were empty after the curfew is in effect for a second night in a row. but there were very tense moments as you look at this, this is when they were trying to make sure the streets were cleared. you saw, different gang members, fighting in the middle of the street. and for a while, we thought things were going to explode. but community members once again, stepped up, were able to push the gang members out of the way off to keep the peace here. then we saw congressman walking in his neighborhood. some where he spent 33 years of his life living in this neighborhood. walking along with people telling them to go home. make sure this remand a paceful night. officers have stood at the ready. but weren't needed tonight. in fact nothing needed to be done. the streets didn't need to be cleared. the community policed themselves. ryan young, cnn, baltimore. >> people are still talking about video from earlier in the week which showed a mother, her

want to bring you this breaking news, just in to cnn. an 18-year-old man has been pulled from the rubble of a nine-story building in nepal. this is incredible. when you kid consider it has be five days since the massive earthquake struck. the young man says when the quake hit he quickly hid behind a motorcycle. that apparently kept him from being crushed and truly saved his life. it's difficult to see him. because there are so many rescuers and responders there working and have been working for hours to get him out. the man was covered in dust, but
12:16 am
speaking, coherent, he is now in hospital and recovering. but truly remarkable. an 18-year-old pulled alive from the rubble some five days since the quake struck. truly miraculous. senior international correspondent arwa damon and her team are making their way to the epicenter of saturday's earthquake. not an easy journey. she joins us live on the line. arwa last hour you are showing us how people are trying to cope and come together absent of help from aid agencies what more are you seeing as you make your way in? >> as we drove past our last location we came across a small village, of about 20, 30 homes on either side of the very narrow bumpy rocky road and every single home there had been damaged. quite a few people who had come down from other villages were gathered there. the army is there. there is some aid being
12:17 am
distributed at the location. and as we are moving towards the, the area where the epicenter, you can see on the mountainside, smaller landslide have taken place. and how precarious the situation continues to be. we are going past buildings. families, people walking back and forth. those that are either escaping their villages or walking to receive aid. some have gotten some. and are walking back to their villages. and carrying mattresses on their head. carrying bags of rice. and getting back to the communities. a lot of concern about the medical, in the areas. if you remember last hour we were speaking abut a woman who was pregnant and injured. they were trying to organize a helicopter evacuation for her. updated information on the situation. her brother said she had given birth. just five days ago. right before the earthquake
12:18 am
struck. then when the earthquake struck, she suffered a significant head injury that is impeding her ability to be able to feed her baby. new newborn baby. her concern is for her medical condition but also for the condition of her newly born baby. she is potentially unable to care for the child. unable to breast-feed it. we did see another case of a little baby who was also very ill. the worst case that the volunteer medical team that seen. and it was, for the same reason. because the mother was dehydrated. she was unable to breast-feed therefore the infant was suffering as well. we are actually heading towards that particular village right now. i don't know how they will be able to get there. a lot of conflicting information that we received, about the conditions of the road. how much need to be walked. what is actually accessible. and added to that. volunteer team.
12:19 am
the location we were reporting from earlier, a paragliding team, paragliding network, group. among them are paramedics, people who have experience. and the situations there. they're warning right now. this is great concern for the situation that is happening. especially for those villages hard to reach. current conditions are ideal for landslide. heavy rains overnight. the ground is now drying. this is when you begin to see the landslide taking place. great concerns, that remote, far-flung areas are going to be harder to reach. errol. >> so many issues. survivors are dealing from the weather to the landslide. to the lack of age. reaching rural parts. arwa damon, head with the team to the epicenter. from what we have heard from people on the ground appears to be a dire situation in the more remote region. just detailed the story of one

12:25 am
kathmandu region and that further destablized the rocky slopes. want to show you the footage out of central nepal. just kind of highlights how difficult it is to get from one remote village to another. that is a roadway or what used to be a roadway. and clearly a landslide of rock and debris swiping, sweeping across the road making it virtually impassible. that's not the only concern. some of the villages within that path of these landslides looking like this, nearly completely decimated. you can just imagine as time unfolds, we are going to see the full -- breadth of how serious this particular situation was. it is the small remote villages now that we are starting to get word on how much destruction and, unfortunately, how many fatalities and injuries occurred out of this particular earth quake. i want to talk about the weather. making the situation a little bit, worse across the area that we have had reports. talking to the producers, on the ground, in kathmandu, that it
12:26 am
has been raining. satellite, not too active at the momentable. we have picked up anywhere between, 30 and 50 millimeters of rainfall between kathmandu and the longtong national park. a popular trekking area for international tourists. see computer models. picking up on rainfall for the valleys. more snow higher elevations. forecast going forward. friday, saturday, wet for kathmandu, recovery, search efforts. sunday, ending the weekend on a brighter note. perhaps some solace in what has been and a very difficult week. by the way we continue to monitor some of the trekkers that are still well, lost with all of the avalanches and landslides that have occurred. rescuers are still trying to get to some of the very remote locations. what i do like about the story, errol, there have been glimmers of hope, we have seen excellent reporting out of the area. sanjay gupta talking rescued babies under rubble for over a
12:27 am
day. and just thislea recent one, 18-year-old man rescued after 80 hours. >> few and far between. you said there, the 18-year-old being rescued not too long ago. a glimmer of hope perhaps others will be found alive. derek van dam, thank you. >> desperation, fear, frustration, most that border on the miraculous. we were talking about this. we will bring you more on the ongoing search for survivors in earth quake-ravaged nepal. >> baltimore is under curfew after days of protest. soon we could learn more about the day that freddim. e gray died. more on that investigation after this. welcome back to

"the washington post" obtained a document that suggests freddie gray may have tried to injure himself in the police van after his arrest. that document cites another prisoner in the van with gray. the two men were separated by a partition. so the prisoner couldn't actually see gray. >> an unmanned russian spacecraft that lost control with ground control will be left to burn up in the earth's atmosphere. the capsule lifted off tuesday on a mission to resupply the international space station with food and fuel but began malfunctioning soon afterward. the spacecraft should re-enter earth's atmosphere in a week.
12:32 am
an 18-year-old has been pulled from the rubble of the building in nepal some five days after that massive earthquake. the man says when the quake hit he hid behind a motorcycle which kept him from being crushed. the death toll from the earthquake is more than 5,400 with at least 11,000 injured. >> more now from our dr. sanjay gupta reporting from kathmandu on the desperate ongoing search for survivors. >> reporter: we know the official death toll here in nepal went up by at least one to day. neighbors watched from nearby windows. still clinging to hope. after all, this 4-month-old baby was rescued after more than 22 hours under the rubble. alive with no apparent injuries. this man, was buried for up to 80 hours. rescue workers administered oxygen and iv drip while they spent ten hours digging him out. there is hope. everywhere you look. and there are reminders of the people who once lived and breathed in this tiny village.
12:33 am
a child once happily sipping on their bottle or seeking comfort with the teddy bear pillow. a notebook. pictures. a family. a pair of shoes. they were carpenters, mechanics, jewelry makers. and there are the survivors. old. and young. and ridiculously cute. just looking around the small little town outside kathmandu you get an idea of the type of people that lives here. the pride that they took in all things around them. this five-story temple built in the 17th century stayed standing while so many of the surrounding buildings tumbled to the ground. the lovely smiling faces saw that as a blessing. yes, a blessing. even while the earth shook from its core. last saturday, at 11:56 a.m., a woman shouted out from her second story window to alert
12:34 am
everyone to the initial tremor. then she didn't make it out herself. she died trying to save others. >> they have been able to identify the person, this woman, she is 45 years old. they showed us the id card. she has two, two boys. they were able to survive. and now we know she has perished in this as well. it is such incredibly, incredibly grim work. >> reporter: can you tell me what kind of person she was? how would you describe her? >> translator: she was a very good person he told me. she was a mother. and she was my friend. it is clear, she won't soon be forgotten. yes, the death toll went up by one more today. but she is not just a number. she will be remembered. along with hundred more souls still being recovered from this ancient city.
12:35 am
because the reminders are everywhere. growing stronger like the flowers among the rubble. dr. sanjay gupta, cnn, kathmandu, nepal. >> an 18-year-old has been pulled alive from the rubble. just a short time ago. so miracles certainly are happening. now to baltimore where a city-wide sur to curfew is in e. large crowds marched in the streets monday. they protested with little or no violence. the police commissioner says officers made 18 arrests far fewer than monday night when there was a riot and 235 people were arrested. the protests spread throughout the u.s. including new york, washington and boston. hundreds marched down the streets in solidarity for those in baltimore. cnn political commentator marc lamont hill joins us from los
12:36 am
angeles now to talk about this. marc, police in baltimore, will apparently wrap up their freddie gray investigation on friday. not releasing details to the public, rather allowing it to, take its course in the courts. but do you think the baltimore demonstrations will still be able to carry momentum into the weekend into next week despite not getting some important answers as to what happened to freddie gray while he was in custody? >> will i certainly think there will be momentum through the weekend irrespective what happens with the police investigation or regardless what type of information they offer. however i think the way the police communicate to the community and the nation will dictate the tone and tenor of the protest. one thing over the weekend people are off work, kids don't have to go to school, weather may heat up. all those things lead to more people in the street and a greater need to impose curfew in the mind of the state. all these things will be important. seems as if they're hiding or being dismissive, you may see
12:37 am
more intense appropriate tests than otherwise. >> so far the tone from local officials and police seems to have been more even handed when he compare it to what happened in ferguson, missouri. more acknowledgement of the issues, baltimore, high unemployme unemployment, in quars racing rates and quality education. really class issues in the states. how then will these protests we are seeing them in solidarity demonstrations in new york, d.c., elsewhere. how do they get people, to more of an even playing field? >> it's important to say yes these are class issues to the extent that your class position, level of income determines and overdeter mmines what job, housing, access to health care you will have. there is the question of race here. race also plays into this in terms of how you are policed what team of neighborhoods you get access to, what type of housing you get access to, et cetera. >> both things are issues that have to take seriously.
12:38 am
>> the lesson from ferguson is when you acknowledge those things exist. as owe pezzed to the may your who said race isn't a problem here. when you acknowledge structural factors are important. and you acknowledge there is work to be done on the inside. it creates a conversation. people aren't in the defensive posture. they're willing to talk. the conversation here in baltimore is different than the one in new york or the one that was in ferguson or the one that was in the bay a few years ago. we are moving in the right direction. they're conceding something is wrong here. that's what you will see carried forth this weekend and next week. >> what do you think will be the ideal outcome to this important conversation which is hatch penning nationally now in the states. i am wondering if ultimately this means the movement will need to convince taxpayers that money is better spent at the root causes, unemployment. education. and police weaponry and tanks
12:39 am
for the joe come of social unrest. >> yeah, a question of pay now, pay later. pay now in the form of militarization of police, mass incarnation. you pay now if you say "we will invest in things that we know work." early childhood education, little raese, head start programs work, and after school, art education, investing in health care works. all of these things work. if we pay now we won't pay later. there is a national conversation that says we don't need to do it the way we are doing it. the current structure of it is untenable. hillary clinton alluded to that in her major speech earlier. we have to change the way we do it. structural solutions are part of the solution, rather. the other piece of this is that we have to change the way we police right now. in adegs to investing. we need a cultural shift from a language of containment and confinement and blem to one of
12:40 am
investment, love, and care. and if we can do that, meaning that we police differently, we school differently, we educate differently, and we imagine justice differently. justice doesn't mean punishment. punishment doesn't mean confinement. we can move into a world that is better for all of us. and avoid things like baltimore. >> true throughout history. growing inequality is not sustainable. marc lamont hill, thank you for your insoogt ight today from lo angeles. awe mo my pleasure. >> a promise made in the final days of campaigning. the british prime minister's pledge and reaction to it. next.

12:45 am
underneath problems that haven't been resolved yet. and i think it has to do with the education very much so, from the, being in school and making links between the different communities, religious communities. but france has a special history, you know? because at schools, everybody is supposed to be the same. and we're not the same. there is a little bit of cont contradiction in a way. i think art is a wonderful reflection and, and, a place where you can thing and evolve and, and ask questions for yourselves. there is a lot of work to do. but i think you shouldn't lose faith. and, and carry on, and try to be as possible. >> now there is now a challenger to hillary clinton's quest for the democratic nomination for u.s. president. vermont senator bernie sanders

electorate. david cameron promised to roll up his sleeves on the economy. >> there is a clear choice on tax. today i can make this pledge. i make this pledge, that if you elect me as your prime minister there will be no increase in v.a.t., no increase in national insurance, no increase in income tax. what it says right there on the pledge card. why can i make this sflej because i have -- pledge, because i have seen the books. >> cameron made a similar promise on the campaign trail last time. in 2011 under the newly formed conservative democrat coalition, the a.t. rose from 17.5% to 20%. a promise never kept and one happily pointed out by his critics. >> we heard a lot from david cameron in last five weeks about what he says he will do for working people. but they are false promises. because today we reveal the truth. david cameron will never put working families first in our
